C's beat Heat in hostile Game 1

The Celtics beat the Heat, 85-76, in a hostile Game 1 in Boston on Saturday. The Celtics comeback victory -- they trailed by as many as 14 -- was overshadowed by a scuffle that took place in the fourth quarter. Paul Pierce was on the ground in front of the Heat bench when Quentin Richardson approached as Kevin Garnett stood over Pierce. Words were exchanged and a scuffle ensued. In the end, Garnett was assessed double technicals and ejected; Richardson, Glen Davis, and Udonis Haslem were also issued technicals.

Tony Allen provded a spark for the Celtics bench and scored 14 points. Pierce led the C's with 16 points (11 in the second half). Dwyane Wade scored a game-high 26 points. Game 2 will be played on Tuesday at TD Garden.

Rays edge Red Sox in 12
By: DJ Bean

Manny Delcarmen couldn't follow up on the masterful job by Daniel Bard in extra innings and allowed a two-run homer to Pat Burrell in the 12th as the Rays defeated the Red Sox, 3-1, in a game that began Friday night.

Bard had 16 of his 17 pitches go for strikes as he worked the 10th and 11th innings without allowing a baserunner and striking out two. Delcarmen was a different story, allowing a hit, a walk, and two earned runs that came from Burrell's blast into the monster seats. After the game Terry Francona said that no consideration was given to pitching Bard for a third inning. Lance Cormier went three for the Rays, despite allowing some hard-hit balls and being put in a bases-loaded situation with nobody out in the 11th thanks to an Evan Longoria error, didn't allow a run and earned his second victory. Delcarmen took the loss while Rafael Soriano allowed just a double to Jason Varitek in the bottom of the 12th for the save. For more on the Red Sox,...

Rondo still sick, will start

Rajon Rondo was still having trouble keeping food down this morning, but he did participate in the team's shoot around and he is expected to start tonight in Game 1 of the Celtics playoff series with the Heat. "I'm hoping Rondo's going to be OK," Doc Rivers said. "A low energy Rondo is not a good thing for us."

The Orioles seemed to have a lot of fun last night clinching the AL East. Buster said the biggest problem for Boston this year was the offense production dropping so dramatically in one year. Bogaerts, Pierzynski, and Bradley Jr. are the most obvious culprits. Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
